How Much of the White Sox Pitching Woes is Robin Ventura’s Fault?

Posted to Good Guys Wear BlackFor the three of you that pay attention to my Twitter feed, you already know my disdain for Robin Ventura. Particularly, I don’t care much for Robin’s use of the bullpen, and lack of expedited decision making concerning the sending of his starting pitchers to the showers, as well as having Cooper call down to get someone ready.

Chicago White Sox: Rebuilding with Robin Ventura

In the 2013 season, the Chicago White Sox lost 22 more games than they had the previous season.

Adding to the disappointment, the 2013 team wasn’t that different from the 2012 team that had been in first place for most of the season. There were high expectations...

20 Year Anniversary Of Nolan Ryan VS Robin Ventura Bobblehead Doll

Who would have thought ”Keeping It Real Goes Wrong” would apply to Robin Ventura, who was an easy-going ball player in his playing days.  It was the night of August 4, 1993 in old Arlington Stadium, when he was at-bat facing the Hall of Fame pitcher, Nolan Ryan.  Ryan known for his 100 mph fastball plucked Ventura in the back and of course didn’t take to kindly getting...

White Sox wear ‘Caddyshack’ outfits before road trip (Pictures)

With Robin Ventura in his first season after replacing Ozzie Guillen and a roster that has a different look this year, nobody expected the White Sox to be in first place in the AL Central at the end of August.
